HOW TO SHAVE YOUR HEAD Whether you’re looking for a new style or trying to fight the receding hairline, when shaving your head there are some aspects to keep in mind which I want to share with you in this post. Shaving your heard follows the same steps as shaving the beard in addition to taking two extra measures. First use a hand held mirror to see the back of your head. Second be gentle on the blade. The skin on your head is more sensitive than that of your beard.   PREPARATION Start by inspecting the growth direction of the hair. This is important because you want to shave first with the grain. If your skin can take it, you can have a second pass shaving against the grain. The head can roughly be divided in two areas that intersect at the crown. There the direction of hair growth changes. The first area is from the crown to...

HOW TO USE SHAVING CREAM Shaving cream is widely used by wet shavers as an essential part of their shaving routine. There are different ways to apply shaving cream and for those wondering how to use shaving cream properly I wrote this post. Keep in mind that shaving cream has different properties than other shaving preparation products. An important one to keep in mind is that you need much less shaving cream than you would with foam or gel. You find a lot of novice wet shavers that use shaving cream for the first time, complain about the lather being dry. The fact is that they use a lot of shaving cream with little water which automatically leads to a dry lather. APPLY BY HAND Shaving cream can be applied by hand directly on your face. First hydrate your face thoroughly using warm water. Then take an almond size bit of shaving cream and put a...

QUICK SHAVE WHEN YOU´RE IN A HURRY Most men shave in the morning. It’s great to start your day with a fresh clean shave. However, sometimes you’re in a hurry and you just need a quick shave. In this post I want to share with you how you can use those few minutes you have in the morning to achieve a comfortable shave. PREPARE - 15 SECONDS Wash your face with warm water and allow the hairs to soften LATHER - 1 MINUTE Lathering is important as it further moisturizes the hairs and creates a protective layer on the skin to allow the blade to glide easily. SHAVE - 1,5 MINUTE Use a fresh blade and apply minimum pressure. This will prevent you from getting nicks and cuts. AFTERCARE - 15 SECONDS Wash your face with cold water and apply an aftershave balm.

SHAVING THE NECK Shaving the neck is for many men a challenge because it is the area on which the majority of men end up getting shaving irritations. This is partly due to the fact that the skin and hair structure is different under the neck when compared to the rest of the face. It is therefore important to get familiar with the properties of your skin under the neck area. Under the neck, the hairs typically have a lower elevation angle and the skin is rougher than the rest of the face. The combination of these two factors makes the neck area more prone to shaving irritations. In this post I want to share with you three tips that will improve your shaving experience under the neck area. PREPARE AND RELATHER Preparation is in general very important and more so for a problem area such as the neck. Make sure to hydrate the skin and hairs...

HOW TO KEEP RAZOR BLADES SHARP AS LONG AS POSSIBLE How to keep razor blades sharp as long as possible; a question every shaver asks. There are different types of blades available and regardless of which one you use it might be helpful to maximize the utility of the blades by treating them properly. This does not only save you costs, but also makes shaving more comfortable because the razors remain sharp. In this post I want to share with you a few tips on how to keep razor blades sharp for as long as possible and maximize their lifetime.

In this post I want to share with you a few tips on how to shave sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is known to be reactive to a variety of external factors. The key to treating sensitive skin is moderation: in temperature, in products and in the shaving technique. PREPARATION IS HALF THE WORK Good preparation is essential for all types of skin and specially for sensitive skin. Make sure to shave after a warm shower and avoid high water temperatures on your face as this will cause the skin to get sensitive. While the face is moist, apply a shaving cream that has a high content of natural oils. This protects your skin and allows the blade to glide freely on the skin.

DEALING WITH RAZOR BURNS Razor burns are common among shavers, some more than others. Razor burns are caused by poor shaving technique and improper usage of shaving products. The reason behind getting razor burns is the removal of too many skin layers during shaving which exposes the sensitive lower layers of the skin. In this post I want to share with you how to treat and prevent razor burns to gain more shaving comfort. USE SHARP BLADES Using sharp blades is important to prevent razor burns. This because a sharp blade can cut the hairs more easily than a dull blade. A sharp blade allows you to use apply little force to cut the hairs and therefore do little damage to the skin.

So the key idea behind shaving the adam's apple properly is flattening the skin. This can be achieved in two simple ways. FLATTEN, DO NOT OVERSTRETCH The first way to flatten the skin around the adam's apple is to pull the skin sideways. By pulling the skin sideways the area that needs to be shaved shifts to the more flat area around the neck making it easier to shave.
